Snow pics

So here they are... pics of our snow... YeeHaw!

This one was taken last night from my front porch looking out toward the horses... They even have snow on their backs.

This is one of the little guys bikes, I took this one this morning...

This is my quad, this was taken this morning. This is between the house and the garage.

This was taken today at about noon. This is across the street from my work. These people have 2 little horses that are about 6 months old.

We are expecting a big storm this weekend that is suppose to bring more snow than this storm did. But we will be driving out to California to go on our cruise.... Another YEEHAW!!

Snow Day...

Finally we are getting snow!!

I guess it is good then that I have to be stuck inside preparing all my stuff for my taxes anyway. One of my son’s girlfriends will be doing them for me this year, so I will save almost $250 right there not having to pay someone. For the 2 years prior to this tax year I had 2 businesses. I was a real estate agent (not by my own choice… another story one day to tell you) and we have the horse business. This tax year we will only have the horse business. So the taxes should be a little easier… then next year I may be able to do them all by my little own self.

So.. back to the snow… it is so beautiful. I know there are parts of the country where people are even snowed in, but I still think it is all so pretty. We won’t be snowed in… no such luck here. We have almost 2 inches accumulated and it is the early part of the storm. I will take pictures in the morning and post them for you.

Back to my taxes for a bit… then its bed time… or, maybe I will go to bed now!

Neglection (is that a word?)

I have been neglecting almost everything in my life that means something to me. It seems that all I have time for is my foster kids. My poor hubby probably doesn’t remember what I look like and boy do I miss him!!. I don’t read blogs… I sure miss that. I don’t spend time with my horses… I really really miss that. My house is being neglected. There is clutter everywhere. The foster kids clothes are folded, but still on a chair in the living room. I could go on.

Our days are so hectic… my hubby gets up at 5:15 or so and is out the door by 6 to feed our horses, the goat and etc., and then be on his way for his 10 hour work day. I get up about 5:40 or so to get ready, then at 6 I get our foster kids up, gather up all their clothes and get them ready to go out the door by 6:20 AND IT IS STILL DARK. Then I go to work for a 10 hour day, which always ends up to be more like 10 and half hours, I get off no earlier than 5:30 pm. I go to daycare to pick up the kids and us and hubby all get home about 6pm AND IT IS A FEW MINUTES FROM BEING DARK AGAIN.

Into the house for dinner by 7 pm. I usually get the kids into their pj’s and plant them in front of a kid movie so the hubby can watch his tv and relax a little. Then by the time the kids are in bed and settled it is time for me to get in bed myself.

NO TIME for anything. On my day off I used to have enough energy to do things.. but lately I am just whooped and end up vegging, then when 4 pm comes around , I felt bad that I did nothing. I want to get back my will and energy to accomplish something.

There is one thing that I have been doing… but it takes no brains and I just sit. I have been reading about digital scrapbooking.. as if I will ever ever have time to organize my photos and do this, what looks like enjoyable, hobby of scrapbooking. Oh well, dream on, I say.

Maybe this cruise that hubby and I are going on will give me a refreshed attitude. A couple of my kids have put in money to get us this cruise. This will be our 33rd wedding anniversary on Feb 14th (our 38th year together).. that is pretty good considering I am only 39 years old… LOL.

Oh… did I mention we are GOING ON A CRUISE,,,,

Well, ya’ll take care and I hope to be back before the cruise to update ya more before our bon voyage.
